Exhibitions
Tough Types. Portraits of Ancient Greeks
Now on - Feb 2, 2020

The Ancient Greeks understood the power of portraits in rallying groups of people across a vast space. The portrait of a person, deity, or conqueror often acted as the physical presence of the subject matter, ever-watchful over inhabitants of the land. Hence, these portraits were exaggerated, depicting the subject according to an ideal age, social status, and affiliations to a particular group. The anatomical hyper-realism of Ancient Greek portraits had a strategic role – a little extra muscle on Alexander the Great can go a long way in hinting at his power.

This exhibition illustrates the evolution of Greek portraiture with 20 loans from the Glyptothek and the State Collections of Antiquities in Munich. Retrace the age-old conflict between reflecting social ideals and depicting the actuality of individuals. Learn how Ancient Greeks' adherence to cultural archetypes in portraiture flourished right up to the Roman Empire, and formed the foundations of Western standards of beauty and representations of today.

Description

Skip the line into the Altes Museum on Berlin's famous Museum Island. You'll be transported back to an ancient world, where Greek philosophers wandered and Roman soldiers marched. Get inspired by the art of the Etruscans, the skill and mastery of the Greek potters, and the precision of the ancient statues, including the world’s most famous lovers, Julius Caesar and Cleopatra.

Old doesn't always mean 'good'. But in the case of the Altes Museum (Old Museum), every bit of its oldness is impressive. The building, completed in 1830, is one of the most important examples of Neoclassical architecture in the whole of Germany.

And the stunning exterior is matched equally by the beauty and intricacy of the museum’s interior. And that's just the architecture! The collection of treasures it holds is - if anything - even more impressive.

You'll wander through rooms decorated with vases and sculptures created from a vast array of materials such as bronze, terracotta, glass, and even ivory, and jewelry made from precious metals and stones. Other highlights include the Münzkabinett (Coin Cabinet) and the fine collection of Etruscan art.

In fact, everything in this museum is old and impressive. Except you - you look great for your age.

The Altes Museum has a lot of beautiful historical items as well as gorgeous room of statues. The line is not very long, so I'm not sure how much time this ticket saved.

All went perfectly smoothly. It a great help to have these pre-paid tickets, should there have been lots of tourists. We were lucky so far not to have to do with many.

Precioso museo, con un muy buen trabajo museológico, cada obra tiene su lugar sin hacer sombra a las demás. No se hace cansado en absoluto, se recorre fácilmente casi sin darte cuenta, interesantísimo :)
